"Married Priesthood Restored To US Byzantine Church," news article from 1998. Initial news report for the promulgation of Particular Law for the Ruthenian Byzantine Catholic Church, which included the restoration of the right to ordain married men to the priesthood in this Eastern Catholic Church. Shortly after this report was published, the Particular Law was put on hold at the Vatican's request and the canon allowing the ordination of married men never took effect due to concerns from Catholics of the Latin Rite. The next year, the Particular Law was published but with a different canon re: the ordination of married men. In the new Law, ordination of married men require a dispensation from the Pope.
